What impacts did the Hyksos have on New Kingdom Egypt? The Hyksos impacted this era in Egyptian history through many significant cultural and technological developments. The foreign kings, who adopted the titles and regalia of the Egyptian pharaohs, dominated Egypt for most of the Second Intermediate Period. Frequently referred to as ‘Asiatics’ by the Egyptians, the Hyksos originated from the Middle East and extended their political and economic influence as far as Cusae in Middle Egypt. The actions of the Hyksos forced the Egyptians to become more conscious of security, adopt military policies, and reform the Egyptian army.
Tutankhamun was an Egyptian pharaoh who ruled in the New Kingdom in the 18th dynasty. His tomb’s discovery in 1922 by Howard Carter made a significant contribution to the study of Ancient Egypt and in particular, their burial practices and beliefs in the afterlife during the New Kingdom. After numerous thorough investigations and vigorous recordings of Tutankhamun’s tomb have taken place investigators have evidence to believe that the Ancient Egyptians regarded the mummification of the pharaoh as a necessary practice to ensure the preservation of the body to be used again in the afterlife. They stressed the importance of securing the pharaoh’s body in its final resting place. Once these requirements are fulfilled, the Ancient Egyptians believed that the journey of the king in the afterlife can be reassured.
Egyptian and Shang civilizations had many similarities. Most notable was their politics. Both had powerful kings, though the Egyptian kings were known as Pharaohs.

History, supported by a range of archaeological, primary written and secondary written evidence, shows us that under Hatshepsut’s rule, Egypt expanded its trade routes, maintained religious, social and political order, embarked on a comprehensive building program and participated in successful military campaigns. Based on the examination of this evidence and the legacy she has left behind, I believe it would be accurate to describe Hatshepsut as a unique figure in ancient Egyptian history and one of the most successful pharaohs of the New Kingdom. Hatshepsut’s greatest achievement may very well be the creation of a stable and flourishing Egypt through her foreign policy. On the walls of her mortuary tomb, there is a depiction of her expedition to the land of Punt. An example of archaeological evidence, the depiction shows Hatshepsut leading a procession to the temple of Amun.

He also built a great number of temples and monuments to commemorate his deeds.

The ancient Egyptians believed that it was important to record and communicate information about the religion and government. Therefore, they invented written scripts that could be use to hold and record this information. The most famous Egyptian script was hieroglyphic, however throughout the three thousand years of history, at least three other scripts were used for different objectives. The scripts were tools for scribes, so that they were able to preserve the beliefs, history, and ideas of ancient Egypt on papyrus scrolls. One of the most unique traits of the Egyptians was their architectural innovation for building pyramids.
The gove rnment of Ancient Egypt was headed by a king (in the New kingdom, the king assumed the name "pharaoh ") with absolute power. Different dynasties, or a line of rulers from the same family, would rule E gypt. Each ruler was considered to be a god whose orders were undisputable. However, the government was not only a monarchy; it was a theocracy. The king would perform religious rituals to help the harvest because this would ensure prosperity in Egypt.
